noise scape 4


noise scape 4 series  (2016)
is a rework of an ongoing script. it morphs slowly into a kind of “romantic” landscape painting.
the technical basics are still very simple; rows of ellipses with some 2d noise and different color arrays. nevertheless, quite much fine tuning between all sorts of values and many little randoms and noises were done..
with the time, a considerable number of varying versions has accumulated. the work itself consists of an on-and-ongoing controlling(screen output)-and-adjusting(code) process.
for finding a certain finishing point, i usually let the script run and export hundreds of images, and then, another important part of the work means; to go through all these generations and find the very special and best or strange ones, which i would put in some “best of” selection, to check again later. the whole process goes over weeks, sometimes month, to achieve about a point where nothing more or better can or could be added…

made with processing
vector for large print

pigment on canvas
200x300cm ( 3 parts)


c-flower is based on a bezier vector curve forming a flower like shape by by rotating it and deforming it by random and/or noise values.
the coloring is made with read out of predefined color map arrays and layering.





curve drawer 1



schorfheide, 2010


the  curve drawer series is based on a vector curve function which reads out a color map or map array and draws in differently occillation structures over the stage, controlled by different mouse action.








swirl series, 2009
based on a rotating bezier curve and color map read out.





de jong


de jong series, 2008

these works are based on the simple Peter de Jong map equations:
x’ = sin(a * y) – cos(b * x)
y’ = sin(c * x) – cos(d * y)

For most values of a,b,c and d the point (x,y) moves chaotically. The resulting image is a map of the probability that the point lies within the area represented by each pixel. As you let it render longer it collects more samples and this probability map and the image becomes more accurate.

barnsley penrose



the barnsley penrose works are made around 2005, using the open source fractal software ultra fractal.
basically barnslay and penrose formulas are used in different other combinations and layers with different transform layer options.go to wikipedia: penrose-tiling
